Our Staff

At Gentle Hearts Infant Care, we have a very dedicated and loving group of individuals as our teachers.  They are all very qualified with at least a 4 year degree in Early Childhood Education.  Every year they are reviewed of their accomplishments and also needs for improvement.  We strive to have the most qualified individuals for our progam so the infants have an enriching and positive experience while they are here.

Director and Lead Teacher


The director and lead teacher of our infant care program is Sara Benson.  She grew up in Mankato, MN and upon graduating from Mankato East High School, decided to continue her education at the University of Minnesota Duluth.  She graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth, in 2000, with a Bachelor in Applied Science and a degree in Early Childhood Studies.  Her first position was in another care center in Bloomington working as a co-teacher in a infant/toddler setting.  She worked there for 3 years before deciding that she wanted to start a program on her own.  During 2003, she was able to get the money she needed to start up her program and that is when Gentle Hearts Infant Care blossomed and became successful. 
Sara is wonderful with the children.  She shows caring, compassion, love, and warmth to everyone she comes across.  When she is with the children, they are her first priority and she treats every one as a person who is unique in their own way.  She is great to have in our program.
